studio sideproject

 We are a full service, POC/women owned architecture and design practice located in Oakland, California.

We were tasked with converting the Balay Bus, a focal point of the Kapwa Gardens into a sanctuary to be used by the hardworking garden team and managers.  Our design is a system of modular furniture components using a green and yellow palette with a focus on wellness and vibrancy. We worked closely with fabricators and volunteers on site to realize the design.  

In collaboration with the team at Kapwa Gardens, Kultivate Labs and Non Uniform Standard.
